Directions

1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in large skillet, add 3 minced or pressed garlic cloves, fry for 1 minute. Add chopped veggies (carrots, celery, and asparagus), orange juice, cayenne and black pepper, and curry power. Cook under crisp tender, remove veggies from pan.
2. Add diced chicken, cook until browned, add bay leaf, lemon juice, parsley, water and water, return veggies to pan. Allow to simmer until water has evaporated.
3. Meanwhile, prepare 3 cups Coucous and Curry Sauce. For Curry Sauce, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in small pan, add flour, salt and curry power- mix well. Add milk all at once, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil for one minute or until thick, then remove from heat.
4. Serve Chicken and Veggies over Couscous and top with Curry Sauce!
Note: My husband isn't much for Curry or Couscous, so I served his chicken and veggies next to half a cup of whole wheat spagetti without the sauce (the curry in the chicken is very subtle).
Enjoy!
